This is the full 2-8-09 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.
Includes an Interview with economist Dr. Jack Rasmus about President Obama’s economic stimulus package. Rasmus is a Professor of economics at St. Mary’s College in California. He is also an advisory to the San Francisco Labor Council Economic Crisis Committee and has written a 20 point economic recovery program proposal, 18 points of which have been adopted by the San Francisco Labor Council and which is now being considered by other central labor councils around the country. Rasmus argues that the stimulus package is far too limited and will do little to prevent the deepening of what he calls an “Epic Recession”. Also includes audio from a January 28th rally protesting Renaissance 2010 and the closing of 20 more Chicago public schools next year and audio from two rallies on Chicago’s west side for passage of EFCA (Employee Free Choice Act).
